On September 25, 2017 we introduced you to Ed Leone, the driver and a member of the CHORE 2 crew on Fridays. Today, we want to take a moment to say THANK YOU to ED for being a member of the CHORE team for 3 years. Your service to the many seniors that you have helped and enable to live in a safe environment has been invaluable.
In the words of Alicia Zoino, the Chore Program Assistant, “Our CHORE volunteers are truly people who make this world a better place and Ed Leone did that every Friday with this crew. Your dedication to helping others is a blessing to us all.”
ED - YOU HAVE MADE A DIFFERENCE!
You will be missed and we at the Bergen Volunteer Center wish you and your family all the best.
Meet the Chore Volunteers - Ed L.! ( Originally posted 9/25/2017)
Prior to joining Chore and the Friday, Van #2 crew about 1 ½ years ago, Ed Leone was in the graphic arts business—publishing, printing and distributing trade, higher ed and college text books-- for almost 40 years. He enjoys golf and working with his hands. He also volunteers in his town’s Community Band, playing the trumpet, after a hiatus from playing for almost 36 years. He says he needs a little work, but is looking forward to successfully re-mastering this instrument again this summer! “In the short time I have been with Chore, I find it is a valuable resource for seniors and disabled persons, to be able to have repairs done, that they no longer can do themselves. It leaves me with a good feeling that I was able to help our clients make their lives a little better.”
